Abstract
Laboratory and in-mine tests were used to determine the feasibility of using an air curtain in place of brattice cloth to separate incoming air from exhaust air at the face of a room-and-pillar underground coal mining operation. Laboratory experiments proved that the concept of an air curtain separating two parallel streams of air is valid. The in-mine tests consisted of measuring respirable dust concentrations at the operator's position both with and without the air curtain. These tests demonstrated that the installed air curtain could act as effectively or more effectively than line brattice in coursing air to the working face.
